Me, Myself and I
Finally! I went back to working on my portrait. Mind you this is my first attempt with working a portrait in fabric. It was late last night by the time I got started on it and then finally went to bed about 4 A.M. I had a hard time focusing by then, and should have waited for a better light and prosective.
Somehow it looked all right in those wee hours of the morning but got a better look and laugh at it today. One thing for sure, I will be doing this again, only I shall have to invest in some small extra sharp scissors as regular sissors weren't quite cutting it. (Literally!) Especially with fine detail around the nose. It needs more depth and detail and am tempted to redo. Maybe stitching would have been better in some areas or the fact that I was working small may have had a lot to do with it. All in all, I don't suppose it's bad for my first self taught fiber portrait atempt, but definitely room for improvement!
